GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. - An unloaded handgun was found Tuesday inside of a binder at Campus Middle School. As many as five students could face expulsion as a result.
Cherry Creek School District spokesman Tustin Amole told 7NEWS reporter Marc Stewart that no one was hurt and no one was threatened in this case.
The school received a tip at 1:10 p.m. about drug paraphernalia, but found the gun when they went to check on that. No drug paraphernalia was found, Amole said.
Amole said parents were notified about the incident through a recorded phone message.
"District security and the Greenwood Police were called," said a message posted on the school's website and attributed to school principal Jane Miller. "No bullets or ammunition were found at that time or during a subsequent search."
Parents were asked to discuss the situation with their children. If any families have additional information, they were asked to call police at 303-773-2525.
“With all of the events, the violence in the world - and hearing about the United States recently - I'm just scared. I feel out of control sending my kids to school," said Janine Browne-Franklin, a concerned parent.
Greenwood Village police are not commenting on the case at this time.
